Department of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the oldest and broadest of the traditional Engineering professions. Civil Engineers
build the worlds infrastructure. In doing so, they quietly shape the history of nations around the world.
Most people cant imagine life without the many contributions of Civil Engineers to the publics health,
safety and standard of living. It is devoted to the improvement of the human environment for the purposes
of making our activities productive, safe, and enjoyable, while providing aesthetically pleasing
surroundings. The Civil Engineer plans, designs, constructs and maintains physical works and facilities
that are deemed essential to modern life. Civil Engineering focuses on the infrastructure of the world
which include Water works, Sewers, Dams, Power Plants, Transmission Towers/Lines, Railroads,
Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, River Navigation, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Mass
Transit, Airport Runways, Terminals, Industrial Plant Buildings, Skyscrapers, etc. Among the important
subdivisions of the field are Construction Engineering, Irrigation Engineering, Transportation
Engineering, Soils and Foundation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, and
Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and City Planning. Only by exploring Civil
Engineerings influence in shaping the world we know today, can we creatively envision the progress of
our tomorrows.

Mission of Department of Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering provides an educational, professional, and intellectual experience
that enables a diverse body of faculty, staff, students and alumni, to contribute to society through
teaching, research, practice, and service.

The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to develop highly competent professionals,
preparing them for entry-level positions in civil engineering, further study in graduate school, life-long
learning, and societal leadership. Allied with both the School of Engineerings and the Colleges mission,
the Department of Civil Engineering is proud of its public service mandate to educate leaders the nation,
fostering intellectual growth of our students so that they may become productive citizens in the service of
humanity. The Department is dedicated to providing a dynamic learning environment that emphasizes
open-ended design, problem-solving skills, team work, communication, and leadership skills.

The Civil Engineering will start M.Sc. in Civil Engineering Program in near future through its faculty,
staff, students, and authority will work together to acquire, generate, share, and use knowledge in the
different fields of Civil Engineering to make the country, region and the world a better place to live. We
will continue to be leaders in procuring internal/external funding for research and teaching. Faculties
work together within the department, and other departments in the University, to provide
multidisciplinary opportunities for both students and faculty. The Civil Engineering Program produces
graduates individuals with high professional and ethical standards to work in government and private
